R*n No. 8: The Red Dress R*n
21st of August 2010
After 7 runs in Siem Reap, both runners and the general population had gotten used to the sight of a lot of fools trotting through the country side. It was therefore time to up the ante and hold our first Red Dress Run. There wasn't much setting of a run to be done as this was more of a pub crawl than anything else. However, we at least wanted to check the drinking premises; this would also be the last time for Margaux as she was leaving the next day, much to the chagrin of Kleenex (seems Kleenex is getting on well with the new trainees, Ed.).

We did not really
expect to see a lot of people on this r*n; the idea of donning red
attire, and dresses at that, seemed just a little too outlandish for
most of the regulars. Therefore, I was positively surprised when about
70 people rocked up, including quite a few
Yap Yap putting finishing touches on INHSWTW
For a pub crawl, the first loop was actually pretty long, hot and fast (as fast as can be run in a dress anyway). I only witnessed about three accidents involving bike riders passing by, seeing us, staring at us and ending up in another bike/tree/red-dressed Hasher. Luckily, no permanent damage was done, least of all to Hashers egos or self-esteem as these two virtues are probably the first that go overboard once one becomes a Hasher.
The first beer halt was more than welcome.
The second loop was even longer than the 1st one, plenty of opportunities for the good citizens of this town to break out their mobile phones and taking photos. I should think our appearance was considerably better than the shite they usually show on TV
A lovely couple.
The Hares took pity (and were probably tired and/or pissed by this time) and the next 2 beer halts were only about 3.5 meters apart. As usual, the note taking by yours truly left a lot to be desired by now, just enjoy the pictures.

INHSWTW getting the attention he deserves.
Not sure what that picture is about.
On On, and see you at the next Hash.
